Have you ever seen those movies where all the authors write on typewriters? Well, first of all, how? Second of all, why? And third of all, where can I get one? Covid reminds me of a typewriter: no deleting, no auto correct, and definitely no blue and red swirly underlines when you make a mistake so horrible that the computer doesn’t even know what you are doing. You can’t just delete covid from existence, and you can’t change it from covid-19 to, “I am definitely not dangerous”

One month later:

all I can think about is change. But the thing is, nothing changed for me, just the people around me. My parents said “It’s Your choice to wear a mask or not,” but I still choose to wear a mask.
I told my friends it was because I got too used to masks. But that’s just not true. I really don’t know why I did it. It just felt right. After seeing only one other person wearing a mask, I’m doubting my decision, but, I trust my gut. I don’t know where it will take me, but all I know it won’t ever be boring.
